  1. The Vatican just approved the addition of another level of hell so they could include playing on the HK server.

  2. You’ve ground the 15/16?
  3. Careful what you wish for. Almost every map WG has reworked recently came back worse than its previous iteration. I don’t understand why there is any RNG on shell penetration. Learning the mechanics of this game (auto-bounce angle for different shell types, etc) is complicated enough. Then you watch your shell fly true and bounce anyway? Fuck off WG. RNG on accuracy: I don’t have a solution. Didn’t play the game before the notorious accuracy nerf so don’t have that as a reference point. But I know that the hard stats on gun handling in the game tell you absolutely nothing about how the gun will behave. I also know that 25% RNG makes every shot iffy at longer ranges ( let alone point blank) so tanks with supposedly good final accuracy as their thing are invariably shitter than tanks with good soft stats.* It doesn’t matter if you miss by a little or a lot. Blah blah. I’ve run out of rant. Time to make pancakes. *I haven’t played the cheese wedges.
  4. It’s the tier 9s I’m thinking about. T-54/55a, E50, M46, UDES 16, etc will all be useless.
  5. @mati_14 by all accounts damage per shot is going up more than HP is. So less shots per game could easily equal less credits.
  6. I think it’s worth doing.
  7. Ever wondered why people are suspicious of old white guys who hang in the Philippines.....
  8. Wheelchairs are almost gone from the Asia servers though. Turns out even yoloing is too much for a pubbie mind to handle. It’s finally safe to finish my HWK 12 grind...
  9. Help a stupid person:

    Why can I sometimes, but not always, change modules, load outs, etc, on tanks.gg when comparing tanks side by side? The options bar is there some days and not others?

      @Wanderjar no add ons. @hazzgar you still on a geriatric Mac like I am? Maybe that’s our issue (in general and more specifically). But trying a different browser has always been a successful workaround when I’ve run into issues like this in the past.

    3. Wanderjar


      I can't say I've run into or seen that issue before personally. (Win 8/chrome) But, i'll ask this, Is this a recent thing like within the last month or so?

      the chromium base code that makes up many browsers (Chrome, Edge, Opera, epic, brave etc)  was changed to handle drop menus and ad blockers differently so that may be it. try a non-chromium based browser maybe?

      @Wanderjar not sure. Will check.

    UDES 16

    Grind done. Sold. Not a bad tank by any measure. But no fun for me. My quest for a home for my 6 skill Swede crew continues.....

    UDES 16

    Yeah it’s terrible for close range brawling. Not just because you can’t poke quickly but also because reds can often easily change their angle of attack to get around you auto bounce armour.

    UDES 16

    @Ezz I’m used to the siege mode I just struggle to see any real value in it. That constant hesitation you mention whenever you want to depress your gun over 5 degrees outweighs the benefit of the extra few degrees the mode gives you imho. If you get to set up and farm retards it’s fantastic. But as soon as your constantly adjusting your position... Idk just not my cup of tea. I’d much rather just relax in my 7/1. PS and the gun is derpy as fuck.

    UDES 16

    With 20k still to go on the grind the novelty has well and truly worn off; to the point where it’s turned me off playing the game altogether (2 games in the last fortnight). Gun is so wonky I’m having Charioteer flashbacks and I’ve never stopped finding the siege mode just a bit annoying. Will sell when the grind is done.
  14. This is, at most, a slight inconvenience for people who seal club low tiers. They'll have to take a small amount of time to relearn how to do it and which tanks to do it in. And seriously, the notion of meaningful decision-making in low tiers.....
  15. You have always been able to buy crew skills with “free” xp. So nothing has really changed. It all hinges on price and in game currency. But it’s being sold for credits at this stage which would be a big improvement in my book.
  16. I know the requirements are low but I seriously doubt they’re that low. 1300 won’t 3 mark the tier 6 12t.
  17. WG need to remove team damage so we can stop getting fucked by our own arty. That is all.

      Alternatively, WG could apply the same team damage rules to arty that apply to everyone else. 

      This would be so great, but it would pretty much be a blanket account ban for most clickers. 

    3. Oicraftian


      But then Arty would have to move up to the front lines to fuck with allies.

      @monjardin A good solution fixes two birds with one stone.

    UDES 16

    I’ve actually had a good amount of success face hugging tier 8 ruski HTs and TDs when getting yolo’ed, because their shitty gun depression equals ricochet. But I think high tier HEAT will trash you more often then not. Really need tanks.gg to get their armour models working to know for sure.
  19. This confuses me. Get your meme image act together.

    UDES 16

    @Kymrel I’d rate the tier 8 as a tier 8.5 while the UDES 16 is an average tier 9; so balanced. And yes, I felt the tier 8s gun was more reliable as well. But the gulf of expectation is so high between tiers 8 and 9. And as we’ve discussed elsewhere, MM changes are probably also playing a role in this. I don’t regret selling the 14 5. My few tech tree tier 8s rust in my garage as I play the tier for credits. The 16 is a novel addition to the game that hasn’t broken anything with its arrival. I’m having fun in it.
  21. Apparently blocking maps won’t block their assault and encounter variants....
  22. Just had an enemy T-54 flip onto its back while ramming me. I moved on as I had bigger fish to fry. When his time ran out and he died I was credited with the kill. Bonus 458 damage. Weird.

    1. sohojacques


      It counted as a ram kill btw.

    UDES 16

    Yes. It’s gun is so far ahead of most tier 8s. Really highlights the gulf between tiers 8 and 9.
